Danby, Francis, A.R.A., a landscape painter, was born near Wexford, Ireland, in 1793, and, after pursuing his calling in Dublin, came to England in 1813, where he made a speciality of paintings lit up with the glow of sunset. His first work of pretension was his Upas Tree of Java, and at a later date his Sunset at Sea after a Storm, Morning at Rhodes, Delivery of Israel out of Egypt, and Embarkation of Cleopatra on the Cydnus gained him considerable notoriety. His death occurred at Exmouth, Devon, in 1861.
